The University San Diego School of Business Administration has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the Foundation for Enterprise Development for research on private employee-owned firms.
“Nearly half of the adult workers in the U.S., according to a recent General Social Survey (GSS), have some form of shared capitalism in their place of work, whether it comes from employee stock ownership, profit sharing, stock options, or gain sharing,” saysid Mary Ann Beyster, president of the Foundation for Enterprise Development. “USD has assembled an excellent multidisciplinary team of faculty to evaluate how these practices work in combination during critical stages of a company’s growth. The results will help business students and entrepreneurs build a solid understanding of the possibilities for their organizations and help train these leaders to make their organizations more sustainable in the future.”
